Flexible pads containing red and infrared LED lights are placed directly on the skin. They are turned on and left for a 20 minute cycle. The energy from the lights penetrate though the skin and is absorbed by the deep tissue. After a treatment blood flow is enhanced by 400% and this increased circulation continues for several hours after.
The key to this increase in blood flow is the release of nitric oxide from hemoglobin. This powerful signaling molecule helps regulate blood pressure, prevents arterial spasm, and discourages platelets from clumping together in the blood. It protects the artery walls and boosts circulation.
The result is a rapid relief of discomfort, improvement in sensation, and regeneration of damaged tissues.
Benefits of Light Therapy:
Increase circulation and formation of new capillaries
Increases lymph system activity
Stimulates the production of collagen to promote healing
Stimulates the release of ATP which is the energy that drives the chemical reaction of the cell
Desensitizes the nerves to pain and numbness in extremities
Pain Relief and the Restoration of Movement at the Speed of LIGHT With Infra-Red SLD
(Super Luminous Diodes)
Infrared therapy uses infrared and visible light emitting super luminous diodes (SLD) embedded in flexible neoprene pads which are placed over the treatment area. Infrared therapy may be used to temporarily increase local circulation, relieve stiffness, promote relaxation of muscle tissue and provide temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain associated with a wide variety of conditions including arthritis, chronic pain, connective tissue dysfunction and neuropathy. Infrared therapy provides mild to moderate thermal effects and is well tolerated by patients. Electrical stimulation may be applied in conjunction with infrared therapy through a probe or using electrodes for pain management.
Electrical stimulation has been used safely for many decades to help manage pain, relieve muscle spasms, increase range-of-motion, prevention of disuse atrophy, increase circulation and re-educate muscles. Electrical stimulation is generally considered painless and is well tolerated by most patients.
Light Therapy often leads to a reduction or discontinuation of drug therapy and the postponement or avoidance of surgery.
Pads are embedded with Infrared SLD diodes at 875nm and 630nm wavelengths, emitting light energy in the visible and infrared spectrum for the delivery of light therapy and mild topical heating. Treatment can be delivered at multiple sites with and rapid set-up over key nerves, arteries and acu/trigger points, and can be strapped in place for hands-free treatment.
LIGHT THERAPY heals at the cellular level. It’s like shining a ray of sunlight directly on injured cells inside the body and stimulating the cells to return to normal function.
